NFF appoints Guinea ref for Eagles, Antelopes friendly

03 January 2014, 10:28Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Guinea officials have been appointed by the Nigeria Football Federation to take charge of the international friendly between the Super Eagles and the Walya Antelopes.

The game is scheduled for the National stadium in Abuja on Saturday.

In a letter addressed to the NFF and dated 1st January, General Secretary of Guinea Football Federation, Ibrahima Barry noted that his body received the request from Nigeria and has thus nominated three officials to serve as Referee, 1st Assistant Referee and 2nd Assistant Referee respectively.

The centre referee will be Yakhouba Keita, a 38-year old official who has been an international referee since 2004. The 1st Assistant Referee is Moustapha Toure, who was born in 1980 and has been an international assistant referee since 2007.

Abdel Raffi, 30, who became an international assistant referee last year, will serve as the 2nd Assistant Referee, with the Nigeria Football Federation to appoint a Nigerian to serve as Fourth Official.

Saturday’s match has been arranged by the NFF to give the Super Eagles Team B a feel of what the furnace would be like at the 3rd African Nations Championship in South Africa, where they compete against the host nation, Mali and Mozambique in Group A.
